Elite Thyme 8 Greenhouse 8 x 10 ft
We are committed to Low Prices.
If you find any of our products on the price promise pages advertised, and in stock and immediately available, at any of our competitors we will endeavour to match the price.
The Elite Thyme 8 8ft x 10ft greenhouse has so many great features and choices to go with its traditional charm that it's difficult to know where to start.
Its frame is designed to be as strong as possible with extensive bracing. Aluminium is rust resistant and warp free and a milled silver finish comes as standard. A hardwearing powder coating can be chosen and this will be in one of nine colours that are UV resistant.
There's a large bright growing area that benefits hugely from the excellent light transmission of full length toughened glass. For better light dispersion and insulation, you may like to choose polycarbonate glazing.
Entry to the greenhouse, which can be freestanding or have a dwarf wall, is through double sliding doors over a threshold that has been kept deliberately low with a support plate. Wheelchairs and wheel barrows are therefore not impeded and doors can be installed at both ends.
Two roof vents and louvre windows create a lovely throughput of cooling air that is so essential during the summer. If you think this insufficient, more can be added and fitted with auto openers that are so useful to maintain a thriving growing environment if you are away from home.
One shelf is fitted as standard, other staging and shelving can be optioned along with many other accessories such as water butts, a kit to collect rainwater from the guttering, colour coded bar capping and cresting to decorate the roof with finials.

Select Your Options
Option 1 > Choose Your Frame Colour
Please select from the following ten frame colours. Milled Silver aluminium is pre-selected by default and is the standard option. However, powder coated frame options are also available at an additional cost.
Option 2 > Choose Your Greenhouse Glass
We offer two different types of glazing: single sheet Toughened Glass or 6mm Polycarbonate Glazing.
Please Note: Greenhouse glass images below are for guidance only.
Option 3 > Bar Capping?
Bar capping is a continuous strip glazing system used instead of glazing clips, this gives a far neater streamlined appearance and helps to stop rainwater seeping through the glass seams. It's made from PVC and is UV treated for long term weatherproofing.
Option 4 > Additional Rear Double Doors?
Having double doors at the rear of your Greenhouse is very convenient because you will be able to gain access from both ends and walk straight through your Greenhouse with ease.
Option 5 > Cambered Door Sill and Support Plate
Option 6 > Delivery Options
Standard Delivery within Mainland England, Wales and Mainland Scotland is inclusive. Although, we can still deliver to northern and remote parts of Scotland as well as Northern and the Republic of Ireland at an additional cost, as per these delivery options.
See our Elite Greenhouse Delivery Guide (inc areas in Scotland classed as 'mainland' by our delivery company)
Option 7 > Discuss with an Elite Technician
Option 8 > Dwarf Wall Modification
If you intend on situating your greenhouse onto a Dwarf wall, then please select this option and we will arrange this for you depending on your planned wall specification.
The charge for a customised dwarf wall modification is an ADDITIONAL 40%. We will confirm this price by e-mail to you and we will contact you to determine the exact height you require.
Accessories > Ventilation?
Ventilation is essential for any greenhouse no matter the size to ensure that the humidity and temperature inside provides the best growing experience for your new plants.
Accessories > Staging?
We offer 4ft and 6ft length aluminium staging (in silver or a powder coated finish) which allows extra workspace along the sides of your greenhouse. Purchase one set of staging to fit a certain area, or multiple sets (4ft + 6ft length) which can be used to fill a whole side or two of your greenhouse.
Alternatively, go with the more traditional wooden staging which is available in 4ft lengths, meaning that you will need 2 sets to fit an 8ft length of your greenhouse.
Accessories > Shelving?
By adding a shelf or two to your greenhouse, you'll have added workspace areas to store small tools, pots and seedlings. Each set of shelves comes complete with the necessary braces to install them to your Elite greenhouse frame.
You may decide to purchase both a 6ft and 4ft shelf kit to fit along the one full side (10ft length) of your greenhouse, or alternatively purchase two sets to create to have shelving along both sides.
